Bento Lab
Portable Sanger sequencing. Very cool although not sure where you get the primers.
OpenTrons
Worth keeping an eye on.
Brian Kernighan on the Typesetting of the "The Go Programming Language" Book
XML, troff, make, and lots of scripts.
Off the Grid
Appealing but ultimately misguided. Millenials want to change the world, or at least their country, and it's foolish to think that they'll abandon networking tools. Better to think about what the moral and ethical use of the tools looks like.
Dirty Hands
Cheating in bridge. Fascinating from an information theory point of view. How much can you cheat without letting on to observers that you are doing so? Why not just admit it as part of the game?
